League Two Preview: 16/01/2016


League Two Preview Saturday 16th January 2016

We're back to a full programme again this week after last week's postponements and FA Cup fixtures and also with a new manager.

*Important games **Key Game

Saturday 16th January 2016

*Accrington v Portsmouth – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-3)

Wimbledon v Mansfield – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (0-1)
Barnet v Carlisle– Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-0)
**Crawley v Notts County – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)
*Dagenham & Redbridge v Northampton – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-1)
*Hartlepool v Wycombe – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (0-1)
Leyton Orient v Exeter – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-1)
Luton v Cambridge – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (0-3)
Morecambe v Yeovil – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)
Plymouth v Stevenage – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (3-2)
*York v Newport – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (1-1)

Once again there are several games where the outcome will have a big influence on the future of teams in League two.

I've started with 7th placed Accrington, who have only played 22 games but have 39 points, at home to Portsmouth who lie 4th with 44 points from 25 games.

Next I've highlighted Northampton who share joint top spot with Plymouth who they beat 2–1 away earlier this week. The Cobblers will be expecting to beat 22nd placed Dagenham & Redbridge.

Hartlepool at 21st, will be hoping to follow last week's very creditable FA Cup performance against my team (Derby in case you didn't know) with a win against 6th placed Wycombe.

Meanwhile bottom club York have 16 points and will be desperate to beat fellow struggler's Newport who are 20th with 20 points.

Sunday 17th January 2016

*Oxford v Bristol Rovers – Kick Off 3:00pm – Score Prediction (2-0)

However the game of the weekend (apart from Notts) takes place on Sunday between 3rd placed Oxford, who've played 25 games and have 48 points and Bristol Rovers at 5th with 43 points from 26 games.

Tuesday 19th January 2016

*Accrington v Hartlepool – Kick Off 19:45pm – Score Prediction (1-2)
Accrington (7th) and Hartlepool (21st) also play each other on Tuesday.

Once again I feature Notts as my key game.

**Crawley v Notts County

Notts are now 18th with 30 points from 24 games and 9 points shy of a play off place. Opponents Crawley are 5 places higher at 13th with 34 points from 26 games.

Notts beat Crawley 4–1 at Meadow Lane earlier this season 22/9/2016.

This is Jamie Fullarton's first game in charge and he will be hoping for a good performance and result to help him win over the restless Notts County faithful.

I really don't know what to expect from this weekend, but if our fans who are travelling to Crawley - make noise and rally behind the squad etc. Perhaps we may get something?

Worse things happen at sea huh...
